Tonight, as the Treasurer rose to give his Budget address in the house, our Deputy Director Ebony Bennett grabbed our Chief Economist Richard Denniss and Senior economist Matt Grudnoff for a chat about the Budget, straight after they emerged from the Budget lockup.
Thi podcast isn’t a comprehensive discussion of the Budget, but we tried to touch on some of the main items, including:
- the radical shift from Coalition, embracing debt and tax increases
- the levy on the banks, which will raise money but could be passed straight onto consumers
- the ‘all package, no housing’ housing affordability projects
Don’t forget to sign up on tai.org.au for our comprehensive budget response tomorrow!
